Photo: It seems Amar’e Stoudemire bathes in red wine

I don’t even know where to begin. It seems Knicks center Amar’e Stoudemire likes to bathe using red wine. Yes, you heard me. Red freaking wine! This is what you get to do when you make NBA money. You get to bathe in red wine. Way to spend your money wisely Amar’e! Maybe you can earn that money by playing an injury-free season for the Knicks. Post by ESPN San Antonio.

NBA experimenting with 44-minute game

Certain things in the NBA seem sacrosanct — the 82-game schedule, the 48-minute game. These are some of the most basic things the game has to offer. The preseason is time to experiment and the league is experimenting away. You might have noticed the Bobcats and Pistons playing an 11 a.m. tip off Wednesday as the league experiments with earlier tip times to drive up international...

Tinder is the only way to preview the NBA season

Tinder is a thing. It is a thing people do to get dates (apparently). The simply swipe and instant gratification of judging people and meeting people has value for some people. It is also a great way to get some hard-hitting NBA analysis. This is clearly the only place to go for the best there is in basketball thought on the 2015 season. That is where World Wide Wob went because...

Carrying bags causes Steve Nash to injure his back

Talk about a sign your time in the NBA might be over. Lakers guard Steve Nash is old by NBA standards at 40 years old. While many players might be well into retirement or riding the bench, Nash still feels he has what it takes to produce on the NBA level but after hurting his back carrying bags, it might be time for him to call it a day. Nash hurt his back carrying bags today, Byron...

Nuggets tickets up by 144% in 2014

A year after a disappointing 36-46 season, the Denver Nuggets will look to rebound in 2014-15. The first year under head coach Brian Shaw did not end well, though injuries played a large part in the underwhelming play. With players like Danilo Gallinari, J.J Hickson, JaVale McGee and Nate Robinson healthy, the rotation depth should be much better than it was last season. There is...

Give the young guys a shot

When the Orlando Magic traded the rights to Dario Saric to the Philadelphia 76ers for the rights to Elfrid Payton during the 2014 NBA Draft, I would have needed Indiana Jones to lead me through that maze of Magic fan boos. All of my friends and colleagues who follow the Magic, they all deployed the face-palm reaction. The writing was on the wall for Jameer Nelson. Orlando knew it...

Five things fans get out of new TV deal

The NBA agreed to a new television deal which will nearly triple the television rights coming into the league starting with the 2017 season. Ostensibly, there are very few changes. Games will be on ESPN and TNT still. The nights will change very little too. TNT may get a few off-Thursday nights and the schedule may allow for flex scheduling so the league can make sure important games...

Nate Robinson nails 40-foot shot

What can’t Denver’s Nate Robinson do? Nate can dunk, has no fear, feisty, quick, and apparently knock down 40-foot shots with ease. In a preseason game versus Chicago, Nate was facing the shot clock from expiring and heaved the ball in desperation.

Rick Carlisle’s ripping of Chandler Parsons’ weight was unnecessary and stupid

Oftentimes in the NBA, players make dumb and controversial statements. Across all professional sports, that is the case and when players do say things that are ill-advised, coaches and executives are the people that have to backtrack those remarks and save face. Rarely, if ever, is it the coach saying something stupid, especially about a player. Well, veteran coach Rick Carlisle...

Jason Williams still has it!

Remember former NBA guard Jason Williams? Well he made a whole bunch of guys at a recent pro-am game, remember his name and his game! At 38 years old, Williams showed he has not lost any part of his game. And I mean not one! From amazing passing to ability to get into the lane at will, Jason still could play in the NBA.

NBA stars want max contract abolished

In 1997, Michael Jordan signed a mega contract. Sure, it was only two years, but a two-year $63.3 million contract paid Jordan more in one year than he had made with the Bulls his previous nine seasons in the NBA combined. This was a monster contract now, and it was a monster contract at the time. When it ended, there would be no other contract like it at the time. Jordan’s mega...

LeBron still thinks he plays for the Heat

After leaving the Cavs to go to the Heat only to see himself go back to Cleveland, it might be a bit confusing for LeBron James to keep his teams straight. That has to explain it because in a preseason game against his former team the Heat, James set a pick for his former teammate, Norris Cole, on new teammate guard Matthew Dellavedova. Luckily it is the preseason so James can...

Hawks flying blind

There is nothing wrong with average, is there? A lot of people believe being average is a good thing. After all, it is better to be average than below it. Stop asking yourself, “where is he going with this?” I am getting there. Ironically, the Atlanta Hawks aren’t going anywhere. Atlanta has been a team lost in space, hovering the Eastern Conference in the mid-to-lower playoff...

Is J.R. Smith gaining the trust of the Knicks?

When one thinks of J.R. Smith as a basketball player, they might think of his questionable shot selection, his explosive scoring ability, or his propensity to get into on-court skirmishes. But being a responsible team leader? That is not normally an attribute assigned to Smith. According to new Knicks coach Derek Fisher, that is exactly what J.R. has been thus far in training...
